Market Vendors Feb 18th & Chicken-Keeping Seminar

Don't miss our free seminar at 10:00 - Intro to Chicken-Keeping. Herlin Jaime, an experienced chicken-keeper, will be here for a fun and informative talk on raising chickens in your backyard. She will cover all the basics you need to know to get started: breed selection, proper feeding, sheltering and caring for your chickens to ensure you raise a happy, healthy, egg producing flock. 
National Sharpening's van will again be parked out in front of the greenhouse for a final time this season. Drop off your knives, scissors and gardening tools for sharpening, while you come inside and shop the farmers market.
